tv debut

Two things that do not surprise me:

1) Emma Green enjoys camera time.
2) The Green girls like the hockey game the most.

Checkout Emma and Esther's television debut...

what's your fantasy?

As posted on my community bulletin board - with a little editing...

"For the pathologically hard core political junkies there is Fantasy Congress. To those of you who either lack exposure to Fantasy Baseball (and other sports) or don't really care that the last bill successfully passed and signed into law by the 109th Congress was entitled 'To reauthorize the Livestock Mandatory Reporting Act of 1999 and to amend the swine reporting provisions of that Act.' this may seem like a really weird pastime.

The point of the game is to guess which legislators will submit the most successful legislation. There isn't really any ideological or moral value judgement on the results. So if you pick a congressman who successfully submits legislation to tax elderly widows to provide tax breaks for Exxon and Halliburton, you'll pick up points. Alternatively if one of your chosen legislators shepherds a bill through mandating marijuana use, you'll rack up the points also.

The 110th Congress opens January 3rd!"

When is someone going to come up with Fantasy Celebrity? Chose your roster of celebutaunts, waifs, cocaine snorting supermodels, alien religious folks, recent divorcees, the other woman, and general hollywood types with overactive PR teams. Whoever gets the most gossip rag coverage in week wins! I might seriously play that.

new baby

What was supposed to be a cheap entry level purchase turned out to be about twice the price. Though in the grand scheme of bass playing, this is still considered inexpensive/entry level. Whatever, I love it. It's beautiful.

Very Short Stories
Wired Magazine - November 2006

We'll be brief: Hemingway once wrote a story in just six words ("For sale: baby shoes, never worn.") and is said to have called it his best work. So we asked sci-fi, fantasy, and horror writers from the realms of books, TV, movies, and games to take a shot themselves.

Dozens of our favorite auteurs put their words to paper, and five master graphic designers took them to the drawing board. Sure, Arthur C. Clarke refused to trim his ("God said, 'Cancel Program GENESIS.' The universe ceased to exist."), but the rest are concise masterpieces.

My favorite...

Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.
- Joss Whedon
